Yankee Stadium II was in fact, it's own domain. That doesn't mean there wasn't tremendous history there however. After all... one could say that the impact that Jeter and Mariano and Reggie and Thurman and of course their leaders Joe Torre and Billy Martin were as strong in Yankee tradition as the icons that had come before them. But ... Yankee Stadium II where all of the above history happened was built in 1976. Very little... if any of the original 1923 structure was still standing when the 1976 version of Yankee Stadium made its debut.
